After a rigorous apprenticeship in his father’s workshop, George Apparut went on to work at Paul Blanchard’s workshop in Lyon and then at G. Mougenot’s workshop in Brussels. He later returned to France to work for and ultimately succeed V.-J. Charotte in Mirecourt. Georges continued to work here and, throughout his career, received numerous medals and honorable mentions for his reproductions of instruments made by Charotte-Millot. He died in Mirecourt in 1948.
